Sky Cottage by Archimania

Project:
A 2,500 SF residence for a couple occupying a tiny, pie-shaped site with views of the Mississippi River.

Solution:
The house is decidedly modern as it responds to both the neighborhood and its primary asset, an unobstructed view of the Mississippi River. The design is composed of two components; a white-brick cube, which aligns itself with the established streetscape of rowhouses; and an elevated box, which resists this grid. By progressing into the home’s upper levels, one realizes the reason for the box’s unusual orientation — a focused and remarkable view of the river.

Bottom-line:
This house, designed and owned by archimania’s Barry Alan Yoakum, accepts a forgotten site and maximizes its positive characteristics to serve as a force of contemporary architecture.
